If you're a fan of the Mega Millions lottery, you'll be excited to hear that the estimated jackpot for Friday's drawing has risen to a whopping $940 million!

This comes after no tickets were sold on Tuesday, January 3rd, that matched all six numbers: 25, 29, 33, 41, 44, and 18.

Tuesday's jackpot was already a staggering $785 million, but with no winners, it has continued to grow.

This marks the 23rd drawing in a row where no one has hit the jackpot.

Despite the lack of a grand prize winner on Tuesday, some lucky players still took home big prizes.

The Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Mega Millions game, sold six five-number tickets in Arizona, Maryland, Mississippi, South Dakota, Texas, and Virginia. These lucky players each won about $1 million.

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is now the sixth-largest in U.S. lottery history.
